We may decide to trust the FBI statistics or to not trust them, but they are statistics. I think it's a stretch to say they have no bearing whatsoever on the relationship between gun laws and crime.

Pick an anti-gun law. What year was it passed? Dredge up the FBI statistics for the five years before passage and the five years after passage. Did any category of violent crime go down significantly following passage of the law? If so, maybe the law had some effect. If not -- clearly the law didn't accomplish what it was intended to accomplish.
